WHAT’S ON THIS MONTH?

MEMBERS TALK

Jason from Jason's Cichlids on Youtube will be talking about how he got into the hobby and presenting a video of his fish room.

MINI AUCTION

Mini auctions usually start at approximately 8.30pm.

We are expecting 70 lots to go up for sale. We aren't able to advise what fish and goods will be available for sale as club members enter their lots on the night just before the auction starts.

An auction will typically have lots of the following for sale (but there is no guarantee these will be for sale on the night):

  • African Cichlids - a variety of species from Lake Malawi, Lake Tanganyika, Lake Victoria and also Rift Lakes.
  • American Cichlids - a variety of species from large Central Americans to the smaller dwarf American cichlids
  • Catfish and plecos - a variety of all different types of catfish, typically including bristlenose and L numbers
  • Dry goods - breeding caves, driftwood, aquascaping rocks, filters, etc. Note only brand new electrical items are sold at the auction.

If you would like any information about the Mini Auction, please visit the Auctions page which has detailed information about buying and selling and all of the rules.

ENTERING AUCTION LOTS

  1. For those financial members entering lots (see here for mini auction book in sheet and mini auction rules)
  2. Read and follow the bagging rules (see here for bagging guide)
  3. Read and follow the minimum sizing rules (see here for minimum sizing rules) for the fish your are entering into the auction.
  4. If you think the fish you are entering is rare, or believe we may not have this fish in our database of photos, please bring a photo along with you on a USB so we can upload the picture for the auction. If we have a picture, more people are able to see what the fish looks like before they commit to bidding!
